Summer has passed. Thanksgiving looms. This is football season.
As Jaguar fans, we've endured disappointment and controversy. We've lost more than we should have. And our bread and butter is getting stale and moldy.
Yet, the players showed us some grit and determination last week up in Detroit. How easily they could have folded after the Lions took a 7-3 lead! But they didn't. They worked and put on a great show for us, and brought home a great victory.
Now let's turn the tables on us, the fans. Well, the team is 4-5. The playoffs are more fantasy than reality. And we're up against a team that not only excels at defeating us, but this year, excels at defeating everybody. This is an easy recipe for the average fan to fold. To give up, and be a sorry quitter. But the Jags didn't do that to us last week in Detroit. And as fans, we had better not fold like a bunch of sissies when the scum-of-the-Earth Titans visit Jacksonville this weekend.
So, be there, in the damn stadium, with your wrinkled Jags shirt, screaming your ass off, and accidentally spilling Bud Light on the dude sitting in front of you. That's what great fans do, whether their team is 4-5, 5-4 or 9-0. Don't fold. Don't be lame. And don't miss your chance to be there when the Jags piss in the Titans' Cheerios this weekend.
See you in the BudZone.
